EXPERT TESTIMONY: MDM MIGRATION STRATEGIES: HOW TO GET TO MDM PHASE 2.0 & A NEW MDM HUB VENDOR CONCURRENTLY

Andrew Pilch, MDM Architect, MASTER DATA IMPLEMENTATION SPECIALISTS

  • Organizations to need to plan for many contingencies including failure of key IT suppliers, need to migrate to next generation technologies, etc.  Planning for possible future migration of an MDM hub should also be carefully considered even though the MDM vendors promote SOA and web services as a measure of “MDM hub insulation” that would allow for this scenario.  In practice, migrations are always exciting, rarely boring or cook book, and all of us can benefit from past similar scenario experiences.  One client recently migrated from one brand of MDM hub to another, and also migrated from one vendor scenario (purchased/in-house) to another (service level agreement/hosted).  In this session, the speaker will share his experiences in discussing
    • Defining the business case for “MDM hub migration” scenarios
    • Provisioning the necessary technical infrastructure to facilitate hub migration
    • Determining the business case pros and cons of onsite vs. offsite/hosted MDM hubs
